I try to eat as much of in season as possible as there are more sales/better deals on those vegetables and fruits. This helps a bit with the grocery bill as fruits and veggies seem to be one of the higher costs. Another idea is to see if your town does the produce box monthly. These boxes usually run $15-20 and include a mix of in season fruit and veggies. A little of everything gets included. Our town does one once a month, they ask you pay the first week of the month and it arrives in for pick up around the 18th I believe. I went with a friend to see how and where it is done. I would like to try it out in the fall and then when I do weekly trips I can add what I need. It did seem like a lot of stuff for $20. Worth a shot if it will save you money and your family isn't picky.
